I doubt whether it's possible to put H. neblinae into the taxon H. tatei. In
fact both plants grow very far apart from each other! Could it not be that
they just look similar by chance,without a direct relationship???
Perhaps they both stand quite close to a more primitive form of
heliamphora from which the other taxa have evolved.
